Trivia

This film was not originally intended to be part of the Bloodfist franchise. Concorde Pictures made it under the title Forced to Fight (it was even advertised with this title in trailers) but the title was changed to Bloodfist III: Forced to Fight before release to capitalize on Don 'The Dragon' Wilson's success with the first two Bloodfist films. The end credits also still portray the title Forced to Fight. This explains why star Don 'The Dragon' Wilson plays Jimmy Boland, a different character than the Jake Raye character he played Bloodfist I and II. See more »

Dragon behind the bars
16 June 2011 | by (Land of the dead) – See all my reviews

If you saw Bloodfist 1 and 2, you pretty much know what kind of movies you are going to see...another movie about some underground martial arts tournament ? HELL NO ! This is your typical prison movie, with a touch of ass kicking martial arts action, you also get the "usual" stuff that you see in a prison movie (racial issues, tamed sexual abuse, beatings....).

If Bloodfist III flopped, i can actually see why, it wasn't what the audience really wanted (and expected), i mean, this is a prison drama with martial arts, not a non-stop martial arts feature (not a bad thing actually).

There is also a very cool rockish soundtrack, that sets the tone for the movie.

Probably, this is the best Bloodfist that i have seen for now, you can watch it even if you didn't saw Bloodfist 1 and 2, it has NO continuity (same goes for the rest of the sequels).
